We believe that everyone should have the chance to see these pictures

Over the next months Carys Palmer (head researcher) will be installing more camera traps across our network of leopard research game reserves. This is essential ongoing research that has over the last ten years made a significant impact on leopard conservation in South Africa. 

Our camera traps sit in remote and wild locations, secretly photographing everything that moves past the cameras day and night, giving us a unique insight into what happens when the game drives have returned to the lodges. We believe that everyone should have the chance to see these pictures which is why we created our Camera Trappers programme.
We very much hope that you can support our work in wildlife conservation by joining our camera trapper program You will receive an exclusive digest of the best pictures each month. Just click the link to find out more and subscribe via Paypal.

Great Tiger sightings this year - Secure your 2019 discount.

We have enjoyed some great times in India on safari over the last couple of months. All of our guests have had multiple Tiger sightings, which is great news, but moreover have enjoyed viewing the other rich diversity of wildlife, culture and of-course food.
We offer a choice of European or Indian cuisine while with us on safari, so whether you enjoy the spices and rich flavours of Indian food, or something a little more familiar, as ever, the choice is yours.

Clean water - a simple way for you to help a child

One of the community projects that we support in Africa
We are asking for your support to help underprivileged children from rural communities in the areas where we operate our safaris. Where the biggest issue is undoubtedly a lack of clean water.
And the simplest way to do that is to supply children with a filtration water bottle.
Our friends at Water to Go will donate one 500ml bottle for every 750ml bottle that you purchase.
This simple device, filters and cleans dirty or contaminated water to provide a safe drink. Simply pour any water into the bottle and then drink clean water from the spout. Ideal for children in rural communities who very often don't have access to clean water.
Rural school with no clean running water
We have a very simple way for you to help. We are asking you to purchase a 750ml filtration water bottle using this link and the code ONTRACKDONATE.
You have the option of purchasing the bottle for your own use, or better still, to re-donate to our cause. Water to Go will then give us one 500ml bottle for every 750ml bottle you buy. if you would like to re-donate your water bottle to us you can easily do this by entering our UK address in the delivery instructions when you make your purchase (see below).
Carol and Will visiting a community project in South Africa
We will then distribute the bottles to underprivileged children from rural communities from South Africa to Kenya, India and Brazil i.e. the areas where we operate our safaris.
Children form our Leopard Conservation Club in South Africa
Please help us in this worthwhile project. We aim to start small by targeting just 100 bottles and then who knows where this can lead.
